iPhone apps for photographers | the collaboration

I love my iPhone.   Many photographers I know have an iPhone.  And based on the amount of iPhone apps under the photography section of the iTunes store, clearly people want to use their iPhone for taking/editing photos or even as a photographer’s tool.  A while back, I did a top 10 iPhone apps list.  Well the minute you publish a list like that it gets outdated.  I wanted to do another, but there are far too many apps for one person to know what is available.  So I am hoping all my fellow readers/iPhone users will come post to the comment section of my blog or Facebook Fan Page and help me compile a list I can share in a week or two.

    What an awesome app! So intuitive and easy to use. My very favorite thing about it (other than the obvious: that does away with the need for so much paper, and that I will no longer have to kick myself if I accidentally forget to bring the model release to the shoot) is that the program can import my clients’ information and automatically insert it into contracts, releases, etc. I am looking forward to my next photo shoot so I can put it to good use!

    It’s about time!!!!

    Thus is the greatest app ever! I love having all of the options at my fingertips! The first client I used this on (today) thought it was so cool, and was so impressed that it was emailed to her! I highly recommend this to everyone!

    I can’t think of an easier or more efficient way to handle my contracts. I’m so glad somebody came up with this idea. This is a fantastic product that I will highly recommend to all of my photographer friends. My contracts will always be with me, in one place.
